Clarifying the health exchange
An official at St. Joseph Hospital told us Monday our Sunday story on the federal government’s new health care exchange caused confusion among some patients.
St. Joseph and Community Howard Regional Health continue to accept all forms of commercial health insurance from patients. Our Sunday story only concerned the uninsured in the community who signed up for coverage through the new health exchange.
The previously uninsured who chose Anthem Blue Cross will receive hospital care from Community Howard. Those who chose MDwise will get treatment at St. Joseph.
